Default new character "soldier"

Started modeling a soldier to go with my M2 Bradley that I modeled awhile back. 2.5 hours in so far. Using Maya 6, polys and rendered with final gather. Comments and crits are appreciated.

Thanks,
Kassun

Might check to make sure there aren't more than one face in those spots or if the normals are reversed.

Looks good so far. :tup:

If you're looking for a realistic look, tank crew members wear a suit that looks pretty much like a flight suit, only their's is made from a fiber that has a resistance to flames. They all have long sleeves and wear gloves on top of the sleeves. military boots are coversed by the "leg sleeves" of the suit give me your email address, and i'll send you a photo of my suit. (sorry but i never managed posting photos here).

On top of the suit the commander usually wears a kevlar vest and a battle vest with pockets on the sides for magazines, maps...
